You can eat these all by themselves, or throw them in with some raisins or cranberries to make a trail mix. I think they would also be super yummy with some blueberries & coconut milk like a cereal for breakfast.

There are all sorts of ways to eat these pecans, just make sure you share them with the people you love!
